I am so very amazed and inspired by…
I mean… this collaborative story is just so wonderfully done. Josh, you have really done an amazing job at writing a wonderfully fantastical tale that the artists were able to really run with. Afu Chan and Sarah Ferrick created amazing character designs that I feel like all the artists interrupted in seriously rad ways! I am just so excited that you all were able to gather around this one story and really give your heart to it. To read the amazing group effort that is Spera is so inspiring!
Spera has really brought together some wonderful artists who work in a wide range of different mediums. Of course I have a bias for comics, but to see the story be told through paintings and illustrations gave me a new perspective on story telling. An example of this is J. Arashi Hara’s contribution. I mean page 3 of part 3 just blew me away! The sea is literally coming up over the land with all its creatures! It’s so stunningly horrifying.
Having text come before each artist’s section really helped blend everything nicely together. It was the common thread that provided context and backbone to Spera.
The fact that the style of Spera constantly is changing really lends well to the magical tale. It makes me feel like I’m looking though a kaleidoscope! I just felt swept away the entire time I was reading. I love it! I love Spera. I really really do. Amazing job. Josh and all the artist, you should be super proud!
Keep up the hard work and being creative!
